All summer long I’ve stared out my car window at all the people commuting to work on foot or on bicycle and longed to be out of my car, biking to work.
What was holding me back from trying out biking to work was, for a long time, the fact that I didn’t have a bike. Then, I got a bike and that reason was gone. After that, I felt weird about biking to work in a suit… until I read a bunch of articles online about women biking to work in dress clothes and how it’s not a big deal. Then, I worried about fitting all my stuff in a bag that was suitable for biking…. until, I fit everything in my backpack. So, with all my excuses gone, I hopped on my bike one morning and tried out riding to work for the first time.
And it was great!
Mayo is about 2 miles from my house, so it’s actually pretty silly that I drive. Half the time, I think it takes longer to drive and walk from the parking lot than it would to just bike the whole way.
So far, I’ve only biked a few times, but I really enjoy the quick ride in the morning and afternoon. I will definitely have to keep you updated on any tips I learn for commuting to work on bicycle- so stay tuned!!
Have you biked to work? Any tips for riding to work in dress clothes?
